news is brown is a neutral color, so it goes with everything. [laughter] but by far the best part of tito's space plan is who he wants to send into space. >> he's looking for a married couple. >> it's a man-woman team, that's interesting, because they're going to spend 17 months up there together in a space capsule that's said to be the size of a small bathroom. that's right. couples only. imagine the romance, floating through the stars, and sharing a glass of your lover's recycled pee. [laughter] and like all couples, you'll be redecortating. "should we make this wall all your poop, and this one all mine? or should we go: your poop, my poop, your poop, my poop." [cheers and applause] [laughter] i just want to take a second here to point out that received applause. [cheers and applause] of course prospective couples will want to make sure you're up for the voyage. so to test it out, you and your partner should spend a month in a geo metro drinking each other's urine and covering the windows with your own waste. and if a cop asks what you're doing, just tell them you're training to
that. i just ran into scott brown, former republican senator. he went last year. he was one of only two of all republicans who were invited. we can't figure out if this is a reaching across the aisle or just a lot of money for a st. patrick's day party. >>brian: you know what's going on? it's fascinating to watch. you had a cbs reporter ask the president how much does it cost to travel to your campaign event in chicago and then follow follow up? yesterday, two days ago we heard, mr. president, why are you taking a vacation if everybody else is cutting back? how much does your vacation cost? now you see him having a saint patty's day celebration and he can't get out in front of it because he's taking away things like yellowstone park and white house tours. >>steve: and that was delicious beer. it is awfully early. i'm going to wait till noon. some of the famous democrats in attendance last night: chris mathews, patrick leahy, and governor o'malley. they were all invited to the white house where they were guarded by some of those secret service guys who used to do the white house tours.
joins us later. campbell brown will be here and "the washington post" ezra klein. up next the top stories in the politico playbook. first, bill karins with a check on the forecast. >>> no good news and another snowstorm moving across the country. most likely sunday into monday. let me show you the stark contrast between this start of spring and last year. last year at this point the blue on the map and the purple show you where the snow was. no snow pretty much east of the ms river and through the midwest. only 20% of the country this time last year was covered in know. look at the map currently. 30% of the lower 48 covered by snow and we have snow pack from maine tlhrough the great lakes and upstate and wisconsin and minnesota. the winds coming down from canada over the snow, it just doesn't have a chance to moderate and warm up. look how cold it was yesterday. high temperatures in the 20s in the great lakes. we should be almost near mid-40s to near 50 this time of the year. this morning is very cold once again from fargo to minneapolis, chicago, just another bitterly cold day ou
records on civil rights and over time, particularly with decisions like brown that were, of course, unanimous for many republicans eventually it became a permission structure. that's why the entire caucus starts voting for the voting rights act and other things. it's a checkered history so i don't mean to simplify it. but if the court goes federal here, i do think it would actually take some of this out of the political space, which could be good if you care about human rights. >> the a-team. alex wagner and ari melber, thank you both for joining me. >> thanks, lawrence. >>> coming up, tina fey's return to her alaskan roots and the man, the only man who could get her to go back. conservative. very logical thinker.

but-- >> michael: we've been debating it now for ten years. it reminds me of brown versus board of education and the deliberate speed. now is the time for speed on this issue. >> absolutely. >> michael: do you think there is a parallel between those two? >> i absolutely do. i was so astounded at the notion that there needs to be more time. it's been more than ten years. i'm very glad to see some republicans including senator rand paul are talking about a path to citizenship. >> michael: that is important but senator paul did not use the word "citizenship" in his speech. nor did he use the term "pathway to citizenship" because of the polarizing term. what do you think about semantics here. >> well, here's the thing, i guess they think that latinos hispanic, are not as sophisticated. it's like 30 years ago if you wanted to appeal to the latino vote you went to fiesta, you ate a taco you said some spanish words as if that was enough. i guess they think that's the same thing. it's not about the words. it's about what policies are you going to promote and actually enact. we're much m
. and at least 134,000 iraqi civilians died in that conflict. the cost of war projected at brown university puts the current cost of the iraq war at $1.7 trillion. and estimates that total expenses will soar to $6 trillion over the next 40 years. now the lasting effect of the conflict and the misleading information that was used to justify it is still being felt today in washington. as our first read team points out, the iraq war is the most consequential political event of the past ten years, and probably beyond. joining me now, nbc news foreign correspondent. we have michael smerconish, military analyst general barry mccaffrey, and the first iraq war veteran to serve in congress. let's start with you here, general. as we look at what's happening at the moment, these attacks in shiite districts largely believed to be linked to suny militants, linked to al qaeda. what would you say the magazine any to do of the situation is? >> compared to the mayhem that was going on during the fighting for fallujah, it is relatively moderate. what we have going on in iraq now is the shia plurality, dominating
organization for marriage, brian brown, sass the grassroots of the party are 100% committed to protecting marriage and you can't just kick them to the curb. >> and according to faith and freedom coalition founder, raffle reed, if the republican party tries to retreat from being a pro marriage, pro family party, the big tent is going to become a pup tent very fast. >> will republican elders heed the warnings from social conservatives? at the rnc at least, the ship may have already sailed. as evidence, the rnc strategy document released this week, the so-called growth and opportunity project, did not once mention the words christian or church. joining us now to discuss the future of social conservatism and marriage equality, is the president of the human rights campaign, chad griffin. chad, it is a happy day to have you on this program. >> it is nice to be here, alex. >> chad, let's talk about what's going on inside the republican party. there's much change afoot. but specifically on the issue of gay marriage, is it your thinking that we're witnessing a sea change from conservatives, that t
